In comic books, heroes are either born or made, but in Hollywood, superheroes are cast. The behind-the-scenes battles to see which actor will become which superhero are legendary and the tales of those stars who fell just short are epic.




Some stars, like Rachel McAdams, auditioned to play a superhero but lost the role (in her case to Jessica Alba). Others, like Nicolas Cage and Common, were attached to big screen comic book adaptations that never took place (Cage in Tim Burton‘s dark take on Superman and Common in George Miller‘s doomed Justice League flick). Then there are the few, like Emily Blunt, who were straight up offered a role in a major motion picture and opted not to suit up and save the world (for personal or professional reasons).

Whatever the reason, these 20 actors came close to being superheroes, but never donned the cape.

Bless you, Michael Bay. The boob- and blast-obsessed Transformers director very publicly fell out with star Megan Fox during the 2009 press tour for Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, which led to Fox getting bumped from the lucrative series in favor of leggy Victoria’s Secret supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whitely. However, the two have apparently squashed their beef, and Fox has been cast as reporter April O’Neil in Bay’s upcoming live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, currently filming New York

And, Michael Bay being Michael Bay, he made sure to put the voluptuous star in super-tight clothing and made her bounce around on a trampoline on the set. Man Show alums Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla are no doubt beaming with pride.
